Jerripedia's unique comprehensive online index to church registers of baptisms, marriages and burials in the island's 12 parish churches from the 16th century to 1842 was launched in October 2012, and then incorporated over 30,000 St Helier baptism registrations from 1842 to 1909 which had been on the site since 2010.
In 2017 a further 100,000 records were added to our associated Jerripediabmd.net searchable database and all the Jerripedia family record parish indexes were updated to include these extra records.
This section of the site is the heart of Jerripedia for those interested in researching their family history. Use the menu on the left below to navigate to the various sections. The family pages provide information on over 1,000 Jersey families, including all the major ones, such as de Carteret, Dumaresq, Payn, Bisson. The pages give the origins of the family names, when known, the earliest occurrences in Jersey, links to family trees and also to lists of births and baptisms.
There is also a separate link to an alphabetical index of over 2,300 family trees, and another to a selection of the more important trees for those seeking to trace their ancestry back through prominent Jersey families with records pre-dating the Parish Church registers.
